Party season is upon us and for us beauty girls, there’s no better way to step into Christmas with some sparkle and colour, no matter the time of day. Whether your style is barely-there or bold, or your time is minimal or maximum, here are 5 easy ways you can switch up your signature style for the big day…
Try a Twist on ‘The Classic Red Lip’
Now we all know that a Christmassy red lip never fails, but why not try something different to wow your friends and family this year? Just in time for all of the festivities, the metallic lip trend couldn’t be more fitting!
For longevity and enhanced pigment, we love the MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Metallic Matte 201 – Metallic Warm Pink as a top coat, when paired with a signature red lip it instantly stuns with its shimmering finish.
Make Your Eyes Sparkle
‘Tis the season to sparkle, so why not embellish your classic winged eyeliner look with a sprinkle of glitter?
Even if you tend to avoid eyeliner because it’s difficult, the ease of using the MAKE UP FOR EVER Star Lit Liquid in 05 Silver Dust will instantly change your mind if you’re wary of trying something new. Simply glide the applicator brush (or a tiny precision brush) on top or underneath your eyeliner for an extra festive finish.
Go for Groomed Brows
Brows are the real frame of the face, so instead of filling in and sculpting a shape, why not take the natural route this year?
For a groomed and polished finish, we recommend that you try using the Benefit 3D BROWtones Eyebrow Enhancer – its multi-dimensional formula adds depth, bulk and subtle shape to brows, whilst keeping them in place all day long.
Forget the Contour
Forget the heavy contour this year. My advice is to embrace a natural flush of colour from the Givenchy Les Saisons Healthy Glow Powder.
Its soft, silken texture effortlessly builds a warm and subtle glow whilst adding structure to your look. Not matte, but not quite shimmery, this tan-enhancing bronzer is an everyday essential that all of the beauty team love to use.
Fake Glowing Skin
Glowing skin is in and if the winter blues are getting in the way of creating the perfect radiance, it’s easy to fake natural luminosity with Laura Geller.
For dew seekers with fair skin (like myself), the Laura Geller Baked Highlighter Duo will accentuate your features beautifully, or for hardcore highlighter lovers, the Laura Geller Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator in Gilded Honey is your perfect match. And, if after all of that you prefer a cream finish over a powder glow, give the Laura Geller Liquid Gelato Pillow Top Illuminator a try.
